Courtney is a co-infection specialist who is leading fieldwork to assess resilience of hosts to viral infections. Her interests include the ecology of within-host interactions among parasites and the epidemiological consequences of anthelmintic treatments. She is a birder, a mouser AND a mean soccer player.
Sarah is a physiological ecologist who doesn’t mind doing the often dirty work of studying helminth infection in hosts ranging from tadpoles to buffalo to mice. She aims to bring together ideas from immunology, parasitology, and community ecology to better understand how hosts, multiple parasites, and nutrition interact to influence host health and disease dynamics.
